Mission, Philosophy, Vision and Core Values
Our mission is to provide high quality goods and services of a sexual nature to the gay adult population around the world; to educate the general public on the history of gay sexuality; and to provide a safe and healthy environment in which gay men and others will feel comfortable exploring their sexuality.
Bijou respects all variations of sexual expression and does not discriminate based on race, religion, gender, age or sexual orientation. We believe that knowledge and information are the building blocks to the future. We believe that knowledge and information are vital to the acceptance of gay sexuality in our society, resulting in the improved health and well being of gay men, and thus, to society as a whole.
At Bijou, we respect our customers and we respect gay sexuality. Therefore, we believe that Bijou customers deserve the best we have to offer. We strive to provide high quality products and services to the best of our abilities by using the latest technologies available to restore and improve gay vintage adult materials.
We envision Bijou as the leading expert in gay sexuality around the world, a company known and respected for the integrity of its information and the quality of its goods and services.
We envision Bijou’s vintage gay adult materials being increasingly acknowledged by a diverse population as a valued art form, preserving the foundation of gay sexuality and creating a positive image of gay sexuality for future generations.
We envision Bijou Theater as the number one choice for sexual entertainment for gay men living in Chicago and those visiting Chicago.
We envision the creation of a new genre of creative gay adult films reaching a broader adult audience.
We respect the company, its employees, our coworkers, and our customers. We respect people of all sexualities
and sexual practices. Out of respect for the integrity and dignity of gay sexuality, we advocate for safe sex practices
in all relationships and in films.
We practice honesty and fairness in all interactions within the company and with external customers, suppliers, wholesalers, and distributors.
All company personnel are responsible to both internal and external customers. The company and every individual employee take responsibility for the quality of our work, the quality of our products, and the quality of our customer service. Understanding that we live with a margin of error, we do not reprimand mistakes that are immediately acknowledged and reported. Attempting to cover up or conceal mistakes is considered a violation of one’s responsibilities.
We pledge to create quality products to the best of our abilities. We strive to provide quality services to all our customers and to all whom we do business with. We strive for a company image that people can trust and rely on for accurate information, honesty, quality, and fairness.
